Welcome to the Horse Forum!

I have been wanting to jazz up my helmet too, so you have given me a few ideas. I plan to crochet up a nice cover for winter but haven't decided what to do with it otherwise.

Cute goat...Nigerian?

Cute, but I would be careful altering a riding helmet with paints.

From the Troxel site under cleaning:

Don’t use solvents or chemicals to clean any part of the helmet, as they can destroy protective coatings and compromise the structural integrity of the helmet.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

I'm just going to apologize for my mix up of "your" and "you're" That's embarrassing!

That's the #1 reason why I haven't painted the annoyingly white extra helmet that I have lying around for guest use. My guess is that the helmet would be absolutely fine with a mild paint if nothing even touched the inner parts, but it's not something I would do without knowing it's ok.

Sweet! If you add some bling to your helmet, please post pictures

And yes, that is a Nigerian Dwarf! Good eye! No horses to post in an avatar (unless I take a picture of the horse I am getting lessons on), so a picture of one of my goats works well!

I will, if I have time to make something.
Thanks, I have a few Nigerians for fun as well as Oberhaslis.... micro dairy.

It is a beautiful area, I love it up here! Finding a job that isn't in the medical industry or trucking can be a little tricky, but it is still awesome here. I'm not a native to the UP, followed my older sister up here, and have decided to stay! I guess I'm one of the few young folks who have moved to the UP, rather than from.

Is there a thread on the forum for Michiganders? I know some other forums I am on have state/province/territories/countries, etc. so they can connect with each other? Considering I'm not in the loop of anything horse outside my friend with horses and the person I am getting lessons from, knowing more about folks in the state could be useful! Especially trainers in Michigan, since they can be so hit or miss when it comes to finding a great one! I may eventually require the services of one.

First of all, do not consider yourself out of the loop in the horse world - there are many I've seen here over time who simply have friends with horses and/or take lessons! Often less than that - just a love for horses :) I've not seen a threat specific to states, but I can share a few members who are Michiganders off the top of my head - (forgive me guys if I spell your usernames incorrectly) DimSum, ClaPorte, New_Image, QuietHeartHorses,....I know there's a few more but can't think of them (long day w/winter prep!) Anyway, just feel at home here, and enjoy! :)
